I have to admit #2. They are my babies. I can't help it. But they are. The greatest thing is, they will never leave me to go off to college :smcry:, ask for the car keys :w00t:, wait by the phone for that boy or girl who promises to call them, but never does. They give more love then I could ever dream. Plus I don't have skin children, and even if I did, they still would always be my babies.

I still teach them right from wrong, to be loving, and loving to each other.

I am defintely a #2 Mommy. And when someone ask me do I own dogs :unsure::faint:, honestly, my first reponse, is my initial reaction, to say NO LOL.

I could only imagine what type of skin Mommy I would be, oh me oh my. But my furbabies are just that, my babies, my kids, and it will always be that way :heart:

Picking only one it would have to be #2 baby/child. :wub:

If I could pick just one to eliminate it would be #1 dog because everything else applies.

#2. Because I care for them, and they give me a lot of love and joy. Actually, I like dogs better than kids. (No offense to anyone with kids)

Since I have to pick just one it has to be #2 - they are my babies. Although Annie is quite the monkey at times and Sophie is our little angle/goody two shoes - she's like the teacher's pet who is always watching and waiting to tell on Annie when Annie is up to no good. lol If either one were ever blessed with thumbs we'd be in heaps of trouble. And, I shudder to think if Annie could actually jump up on things (sofa, etc.) I don't know what we'd do. :)

Now, hubby says that Sophie is definitely human in a fur coat, but that Annie is a dog!!! I think he says that because she is always up to some kind of trouble - that girl's hobby is wreaking havoc in a fun loving way of course - if she were truly a human she'd be the teenager out there trying everything and always in trouble. LOL

I was never much of a "pet person" growing up. I liked pets, but never thought of having one of my own. After all, the hair on my friends clothes - to think that their pets slept in bed with them - was beyond comprehension, what about all those "bugs" dogs have!

In fact, I one time witnessed a friends mother giving their dog a lick from her ice-cream cone ==shocking==. Those people even talked "funny" to their pets - it was all very strange - Thankfully my mother reassured me that pets were "dirty" and we would never have a pet - "the hair, the messes, etc." - I was safe!

Funny how things change. My freshman year in college, I had a friend who had three "monsters" (Labs) - yes, they lived in the house, ate in the kitchen and slept on the beds. My friend also talked to their dogs as if they were "babies" - Over that summer I fell madly in love with those fuzzy-faced-beasts. It was the loyalty and gratitude of those "babies" that stuck me first.

Soon, I would seek out to volunteer in any capacity as long as it involved animals - I would dream of a time when I would have my own home, and have my own dog hair, dog dish - share my bed with my fuzzy-friend and even talk to them in a high-pitched voice.

When I got married, the first thing I did after we purchased our home - you guessed it - right to the shelter I went . . .

My kidz are my babies - I can’t help but talk to them in that "funny" voice even when people are about - in fact, I talk to all dogs that way, and I make no apologies about it.

I was told one time that I was "laconic" - sorry for the long post.

It's # 2 for me!

Um, I wish "Beloved Pet" was a choice, cuz that's what I choose as most appropriate...but in lieu of that option, surrogate child is pretty darn close.:)

#2... lol I gave my two oldest brothers my countdown to getting my fluff last month and they both freaked.. They told me that they didn't know I was going to have a baby and I told them that I was! lol Talk about upset siblings!! My mom had to step in and tell them what kind of child and that I wasn't pregnant. :HistericalSmiley: The looks on their faces was priceless!!

Snowball is an Angel. He is my Earth Angel Doggie.

This past year was a big challange for me. I had an exacerbation with my MS. It was scary. I couldn't even lift my feet or legs onto the bed, sofa, or into the car. At one point it was difficult to get up out of a chair ... I needed help. Almost a year, later ... and, although I was told I would probably have to rely on a walker and cane forever ... I can now walk again. That is, without the walker or cane. Snowball was and continues to be, a huge part of where I am today. He was, and continues to be there for me in so many ways. He comforts me, makes me laugh every single day, and encourages me to be the best that I can possibly be.

I have many Earth Angels, who have been and continue to be there for me. Snowball is one of those Angels. He actually encourages me to get up and do my exercises ... simple exercises for others ... like kicking a ball. He has made that his new fun play thing to do with Mommy. It makes me laugh and makes my exercising fun.

Snowball has somehow helped me not to worry about things to the extreme ... he has changed me so much in that way. It's hard to explain.

Snowball makes me laugh ... even when I have felt down or have felt pain that seemed unbearable. He lifts my spirits all the time. He has given me a reason to continue to think positive and not give up ... that is a huge blessing.

I could go on and on about why I think Snowball is an Angel. Even his vet, Krisi, (also his Godmother) has always said that Snowball has the soul of an Angel. She saw that from the time Snowball was a puppy. But, I will leave it at that for now.

Thank you, God, for giving me and my husband ... our Angel Snowball. Snowball is truly a gift from Heaven.

I have skin kids I love them dearly, but I think of Matilda and B&B as my baby's. Matilda brings me great joy, when I feel down she's there with her ball,:innocent: when I'm happy she's there with her ball, :innocent:when I need kisses she's there with her ball,:innocent: when I go to bed she's there with her ball, :innocent:she loves me unconditional,:wub: ( just maybe she loves her ball as much as her mommy)
B&B is there to make me laugh,:HistericalSmiley: she is so verbal,:blink: always happy and always begging,:chili: she's so full of life and love,:wub: I am so blessed:amen: that's why I call them my baby's:smootch::heart:

Oh, thank you, Allie! :tender: You put a big smile on my face and made me laugh! I especially love the parts about how we talk to our fluff babies and allow them in bed with us! Ah yes, how we change when these precious angel babies melt our hearts. :wub::wub:

It is number 2 for me and I feel they are my babies. I love them unconditionally and take care of them. They bring me joy and love and I would not trade that for anything. My husband loves them too!!

I have to say #2, baby:innocent:...My husband and I think of him as a real baby...I think it's because he's so small. We have had other dogs in past years that we thought of as dogs.loved them too...but Rocky melts our hearts, gives us so much love...we are crazy about him. He doesn't ask for anything but playing fetch with him. He's always happy to see us. I love my kids to no end, but Rocky is our little baby. We love him so much!!!!:wub:
